(WJLA) - The Pentagon is one of the most secure buildings - if not the most secure building - on Earth. Why, then, did a person try to smuggle a large amount of marijuana in?

According to Foreign Policy magazine, an Army civilian tried to bring 25 grams worth of pot into the Pentagon last month.

The civilian Department of Defense employee was caught by Pentagon Police on Nov. 19 during a period of increased scrutiny at security checkpoints.

Foreign Policy says that the person is not required to be named, but that this person would likely be subject to criminal penalties.
